Step & Repeat Design Tips

  • Always create your backdrop at full-scale / actual desired size.
  • Only create smaller / scaled artwork when your step and repeat backdrop exceeds 227" width.
  • Use vector logo files and/or the highest-resolution raster graphics whenever possible.
  • All logos and graphics should be at a minimum of 100 DPI for best print results.
  • Always use CMYK color mode or convert your RGB file to CMYK if possible.
  • Include a 2" margin on all sides for production finishing: hem & grommets, pole pockets, velcro, etc.
  • Keep all logos at least 8" - 18" in width and 2.5" in height. Width is more important than height for readability.
  • White backgrounds are the most forgiving for flash photography as they hide bounce-back and increase ambient lighting.
  • Save your file as a Press Quality PDF.
  • Submit Your Artwork
